ANIMAL CONTROL BUSTS CUT AND SHOOT RESCUE

Several days ago, a Montgomery County Animal Control Officer was dispatched to the Cut and Shoot area in response to reports of several neglected animals at a mobile home owned by local animal shelter owner Jessica Grilott.

The person filing the complaint told the Animal Control Officer that after her rescue had transported a mother dog and 13 pups to Rebel Rescue, the pups began dying under their care. The shelter who dropped them off at Rebel Rescue retrieved the the mother and living pups in an effort to take them to another shelter.

The Animal Control Officer was not able to locate anyone at the address but did find at least three dogs inside the home. She also noted the overgrown yard and the large amount of trash outside. Even with the doors and windows closed, the officer was still able to smell an intense odor from inside the home and the strong presence of flies. Noting power and utilities connected to the home she left a notice.

The officer returned to the location last Tuesday, and noted that someone appeared to be inside the home as she was able to hear the sound of hammers, however she was not able to get anyone to answer the door. Checking the backyard, a carpet was found on a large pile of trash. The grass, still uncut was waist deep.

Later that afternoon the officer returned to the home and found the owners husband to be home. He allowed the officer inside to look at the animals. The conditions were worse than expected. The animals were being forced to live and stand in their own feces and urine and there was not adequate food or water.

The Animal Control Officer then contacted Montgomery County Animal Control Director Tim Holifield, who in turn contacted Montgomery County Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace James Metts.

Judge Metts signed a seizure order and Montgomery County Animal Control returned to the mobile home and seized the animals.

The animals seized included several pit bull mixes, a female brindle and white Bassett Hound mix and a brindle and white Bulldog mix. The animals have since been transported to the Montgomery County Animal Shelter to be cared for. A seizure hearing will be set in Montgomery County Justice of the Peace Court sometime next week.
